LETHBRIDGE, Alberta — With the 2018-19 Canada West season just around the corner for the Lethbridge Pronghorns, they have added some more talent in time for the new campaign.
Canada West play got underway this past weekend, but the Pronghorns were not in action. Now, they have added another talented piece to the puzzle that will help them in their quest for a league title.
On Monday, the Pronghorns announced that they have added Logan Moncks to the roster. Moncks is familiar with the basketball landscape in Lethbridge, having played with the Lethbridge College Kodiaks in the ACAC back in 2016-17.
In a statement released by the athletics department at Lethbridge University, interim head coach Dave Waknuk had this to say on the addition of Moncks to this year’s team:
“We are excited to add Logan to our Pronghorns program this season. Logan has been extremely successful with every program she has been a part of and we are thrilled to be adding someone of Logan’s high character and skill set to our Horns team this year.”

Back in 2016-17, Moncks was a part of the Lethbridge College Kodiaks in the ACAC. That year, the Kodiaks went a perfect 21-0 in ACAC play, and they went on to win both the ACAC and CCAA Championships.
That season, Moncks was named the ACAC Player of the Year after averaging 22.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. After leading the Kodiaks to the CCAA Championship, Moncks was also named a CCAA All-Canadian and CCAA National Championship First Team All-Star.
Moncks was also selected to the ACAC South Division First-Team.
Prior to playing for the Kodiaks, Moncks played for the SAIT Trojans for two seasons. She was named the 2013-14 ACAC Rookie of the Year with the Trojans.
The Pronghorns are coming off a 2017-18 season in which they finished with a record of 11-9 in Canada West play, and they will be looking to climb in the rankings and contend atop the standings for a league title. Adding a player like Moncks will only help their case as the season unfolds.
Lethbridge opens the season this weekend with a pair of home games against the MacEwan Griffins on Friday and Saturday.
